    Too bad that's already a taken song, otherwise it would make a cool SW related name.

    You had some good ones there,Grimby!The geat thing about SW-related names is how easily recogzizable they are,even though it seems obscure.

    Yet even more:
    --My Home This Is
    --Kessel Run
    --Garbage Chute Flyboys
    --Just Let Go Luke

    I heard of a band in Pennsylvania once called "Naked pictures of Chewbacca" and I've always gotten a kick out of that one.

    Without giving it good extensive thought, I'd go with "You Rebel Scum" off the top of my head.

    Well Idgie, you could choose one for a band name and use the rest as song titles.

    You're right there is a band named Twin Sister. I read about them in one of the Insiders (don't know which one cause I don't subscribe and I don't get to read all of them)

    They Star Wars lines or themes for all their song titles too, which is where I got the suggestion.

    I don't really like the idea of using them as song titles,but I do like the thought of using them as band names,but changing the name often.One night you're "Rebel Scum",the next night you're "Battle of Hoth",until you find something permanent.

    GARBAGE CHUTE FLYBOYS -- now there's my favorite so far!

    - part of the tribe
    - set for stun
    - fly casual
    - so be it
    - away with your weapon
    - thank the maker
    - do or do not
    ...or simply - the force!


    isn't it cool how every time you sit and think about these you always come up with something different? this could go on forever!

    I liked "Set for Stun" also.I think my favorite still has to be "Many Bothans Died".

    Don't remember if anyone used it yet,but I also like "My Home This Is".And I think a great name for a girl-group would be Vader-vixen.

    Stormtroopers who hit their head

    There's actually a Swedish band named Imperiet, which means Empire, and it's taken from ESB.

    This is cool indeed!
    Here's one for a possible record company:
    "Industrial Light & Music"
    Which is a bit lame and will probably get you in court!

    Band & artists names:

    "Firgin D'an and the Modal Nodes"

    "4 LOM" (Pretty obvious when your band has 4 members I'd say)

    "Mon Calamari"

    "The Twi'leks"

    "Yavin Four"

    "Hoth Hoth Hoth" (don't take this serious)

    "Vinsoth"

    "Joh Yowza"

    "Rappertunie" (For those of you who are into hiphop)

    "The Salacious Crumbs"
